Managed to cobble together 5 Windows PCs on the weekend and played Artemis: Spaceship Bridge Simulator with the whole family. Two of the PCs are hilariously old, but still ran nicely (showing the console - but not the nice 3D render above).
The funniest moment came when the Laptop running the server blanked out (we had forgotten to plug it in - derp). The game actually managed to restart exactly where it was 3 minutes later when we got it running again… We declared it an AdBreak, which then became a running joke every time something went wrong or someone wanted to run and get food or the like!
The main thing we learnt = just how special the whole chain of command and organisation and calmness of leadership there is on the bridge of the enterprise = NOT on our bridge!
I saw this game first at Gen Con. If you’re a serious Star Trek fan then you may well have a serious amount of fun playing this game.
Has anyone else every played this? Are there ways of getting more story into the game? Has anyone played on a public server? Best hints?
